Can someone explain why open water is terrifying to me. Also what irrational fears do you have anon?
>>
I think it`s the same reason why some people are afraid of the dark. Because of the unknown that lies within.

I hate sharks. ffs they look so fucking scary
>>
I freak out if I can't see the bottom of the water. I can swim well but i fucking lose it. Like boats and fish a little but fuck man need to be able to see the bottom

itsbasicly just survival instinct. humans are not meant to live in the water and there are many animals that could harm you. the fear is just the signal to leave the water and return to the land.

I am sort of afriad of heights, and I made myself go skydiving.. not tethered, but actually climbed out on the wing of the plane and jumped myself. ( only with 12 foot ripcord though )

and it was FUCKING AWESOME! as soon asI got down I wanted to go again.

but the water fear, I can't fucking control it. I feel like I am about to be disemboweled the whole time. I have tried many many times, I love being in ocean and swimming, but once I am out and there is nothing under my feet, and getting touched by kelp and shit... I stay out for 30 minutes, and then suddenly panic paddle in.

>shame

>>680139560
*meant to write fish instead of fight.

Also the sea is fucking cold, I might add. We'd just lose our normal body temperature after a while and then drown. No bottom visible just sums up all the risks.

That's called telephobia, if anyone was wondering.

You should start by snorkeling or diving in shallow water, or in reefs. You will develop a taste for submarine creatures and be more and more curious for deeper creatures.

I am myself a diver and there are so many sea animals that I wish to see that are so beautiful. Ill dump some to prove my point.

I've been around water my whole life and love it. However, I'm terrified of having my arms pinned by my side. I have nightmares regularly of being trapped trying to remove a jacket, or getting a hand caught in a pocket, unable to freely move. If I can't move my arms I go nuts.

I'm fascinated by open water. I guess because I've lived in the middle of fucking Texas my whole life and have never seen the ocean.

My irrational fear is of germs. I carry individually wrapped handwipes with me everywhere - two in each jacket pocket, two in my left pants pocket, one in each sock, and a box of backups in my car and backpack. I also carry a fuck-ton of tissues for opening doors and touching grocery cart handles.

I know it's stupid, but I can't help it. I also wash my hands so often that they crack and bleed quite a lot.

I#m not afraid of water, at all. last year i've been sailing in the baltic sea, tied myself to a rope and jumped off the boat. been in there for like 5 minutes, water was maybe like 30 meters dee. there where probably some porpoises beneath me and this thought is fucking amazing. That doesent mean, i have no respect of sea creatures (or any other animal). You don't fuck with them, they don't fuck with you, easy as that. That i'm nt afraid of water might be, because i spent a lot of my chilhood on an offshore island.
On the Contrary, being buried freaks me out. i cant imaginge being under the ground and fouling after i died. Also, mountains are kinda weird. i'm used to see the horizon or at least being able to look far. Looking around and seeing a giant wall of stone doesn't scare me, but i feel kinda uncomfortable.

>I'm fascinated by open water. I guess because I've lived in the middle of fucking Texas my whole life and have never seen the ocean.

I'm kind of the opposite. I'm fascinated by large areas of land, including deserts. It's probably because I've lived in New Zealand my whole life which is literally 100% urbanised and surrounded by ocean.

Also do your hands crack and bleed due to dermatitis or something? Because you can get stuff for that.

I had a similar experience in the forest at night. Found myself standing in the woods trying to decide if I should be afraid. I remember doing a checklist in my head of possible dangerous creatures in my area. Then I went through them to find potentialy aggressive animals, I remember debating if mountain lions were in my area. Unless it is pitch black I now have no fear of the woods. It feels like a large open area that is comfortable, as opposed to closed in and surrounded by danger.

I'm not as paranoid as you seem to be, but I do they same. Carry a .45 Colt Defender on my person & keep a full frame .45 & a Glock .40 locked up in a safe under my seat. I've even driven around with an M4 or AK at certain times, depending on the situation, but keep the rifle, ammo & mags separate, so it's legal. I also carry a soft handgun case with a couple knives, extra cash, a multi-tool and some knucks in my car.

I assess everything wherever I go and always plan a way out of a public building.

I carry everywhere too. Don't give a fuck about gun free zones because that's where shit goes down. If I go to one of my kids' plays at their schools or drop off/pick up- I carry on school grounds. Also, carry in theaters, malls, etc. Everywhere... Fuck it. No one knows and the only time I'd have to pull it is in a life or death situation and no prosecutor is going to do shit to someone who defends themselves and others, even in a retarded gun free zone.

But anon, I don't think you're weird or in any way wrong. You're being a fucking man; using your instincts to protect yourself and others if needed. People that aren't like us will curl up in a fetal position and whimper like pussies. Keep it up. You're doing God's work.

No, not the same kind of game.
Shark! is story based and you're all alone, Depth is full on action deathmatch.

Both create a way different feel for the player.

Same with Carnivores, its a solo experience. you can't compare that to games where there's 2 sides and little Johnny from down the street is chasing you as a T-Rex.

Hey OP I have had this fear for the LONGEST time dude. I originally went snorkeling in Hawaii, and I was like wow theres no sharks this is beautiful. Fast forward to Cabo, I get the chance to do scuba. Wow theres no sharks this is great!!! I decide to get certified. Well I live out in California and I have a beach house up in pismo so I dived a couple times down central coast well everything was awesome until my 4th or 5th time, I was near the bottom of a kelp forest checking out where some clams were and looking at some stuff (found coins and a pair of glasses). Well i notice a shadow around I couldnt see very well because whatever it was I thought it was a whale but when I looked above me maybe 10 ft, it was like a fucking 20' great white and 1 or 2 pups but the thing was like the size of my truck, so I just chilled down there while it sort of circled and went around the kelp and stuff, ( i think it was looking for seals) but the fucking thing hung around the area where my little panga was and so going up to the boat and climbing in was like the scariest thing I have ever had to do in life. You can call someone underwater to help you...You cant scream....Your alone...helpless....I have some dive equipment for sale.

Yeah. Pretty bad. Yet again, when you drown in salt water, you're not choking on the water. You're choking on your own blood, because the water dries out your lungs, filling your esophagus with blood. You die because your body can't handle the water, not because there's too much.

Being burned to death would probably still hurt worse.

Fair enough, but it had that filename when I downloaded it. I usually name my files for special reasons.

Here's what scares me. When I jump into water in a lake or ocean, I can tell the body of water is huge, but it feels like it's closing in on me. I don't have claustrophobia or fear of large spaces, but combining them terrifies me.

Heard it from some random youtube video a some years ago, plus directly asking bio teachers in both high school and college... not sure where to find the info other than doing a simple google search.

>In cases of fresh water drowning, the water filling someone’s lungs is considered ‘hypotonic‘ to the blood. The fresh water seeps its way into the blood stream where it dilutes your plasma/electrolytes. This causes the red blood cells to swell up and eventually burst.Drowning in salt fresh or fresh water
>Also, and more obviously, the fluid filling a person’s lungs will prevent the body from taking in enough air. Not being able to take in air means your body can’t get the much needed oxygen it needs to function. This will lead to eventual cardiac arrest. An individual who is drowning will likely be unconscious before the heart stops, however.

>Drowning in saltwater is an entirely different beast. When the lungs fill with saltwater, it has the opposite effect and becomes ‘hypertonic‘ to the blood passing nearby. The plasma in our blood gets sucked into the lungs and fills it, preventing gas/air exchange. No air exchange, no oxygen entering the bloodstream. Without oxygen, our hearts give up and we go unconscious and eventually die.

Another explanation:

>Drowning involves suffocating while in water. You don't even need to breathe in the water for this occur, but if you do inhale salt water, the high salt concentration prevents the water from crossing into lung tissue. If you drown in salt water, it's usually because you can't get oxygen or expel carbon dioxide. Breathing in salt water acts as a physical barrier between the air and your lungs. If the salt water is removed, you can breathe again.

>However, that does not mean there won't be lingering effects! Salt water is hypertonic to the ion concentration in lung cells, so water from your bloodstream enters your lungs to compensate for the concentration difference.

>Your blood thickens, putting strain on your circulatory system. The stress on your heart can lead to cardiac arrest within 8 to 10 minutes. The good news is, it's relatively easy to rehydrate your blood by drinking water, so if you survive the initial experience, you are well on the road to recovery.

tl;dr inhaling saltwater creates a barrier between the lungs and the bloodstream, so even if your head is above the water, you want get oxygen into your bloodstream. To make it worse, blood has water, and this one permeates into the lungs to balance the ion concentration.

Salt water has a lot of salt ions dissolved in it, and is on one side of the permeable barrier (lungs). The blood is on the other side of the barrier, and so to balance the amount, water from the blood permeates into the lungs, which causes, one, to have more water in your lungs blocking the oxygen exchange, and two, makes the blood flowing in your veins thicker.

Whenever I'm driving on the highway and switch lanes I always have a fear that I missed a car on my blindside and that they ram me from behind. Weird since I've never been in a crash before.

I mostly dislike technology and water mixing. Ive seen electricity fuck people up. The thought of being in water and seeing an electric main line come near is horrifying.
